General Hal Moore Celebrates 87th Birthday

General Hal Moore thought he was attending a small family reunion in Auburn, AL to celebrate his birthday. Instead when his family convinced him to dress in his Army Blues and he arrived at church, he was greeted by a couple hundred of his closest friends from all over the country. The party honoring the Ia Drang hero included city and county officials, classmates from high school and West Point, Rear Admiral Paul Rosser, Hall of Famer Red Schoendienst, and many others. Joe Galloway co-author of both Gen. Moore’s books was also in attendance.

Gen. Moore, Mr. Galloway and several other heroes from the Battle of Ia Drang have shared at the 2007 and 2008 American Veterans Center’s conferences. Contact the American Veterans Center to purchase DVDs of the conference sessions.
